Jazz Trumpeter, Vocalist, Arranger

Anna wrote and arranged her first jazz composition for big band in high school, where she also won state awards for both vocal jazz and classical trumpet playing.

After graduating from the University of Michigan, Anna moved to Los Angeles, where she performed at Los Angeles area clubs such as Steamers, The Vic, Charlie O's, Spazio, and the Four Points Sheraton Jazz Masters Series, among others.

Anna's debut CD, My Ideal, was released in 2002, and her second album, It's Just the Rain, was released in 2004. These albums contain some standards and some original compositions, and most of the arrangements are Anna's. Both albums have been played on jazz stations around the country and internationally, and Anna has been a featured artist on United Airlines as well as A&R Online, a site that links exceptional artists with record labels.

Anna continues to perform occasionally in the Boston area. She currently performs with The Fried Bananas, a band composed of lindy-hop dancers that performs swing and blues music for dances. They have performed in various cities in the northeast including Boston, New Haven, and even some north of the border.

As a promotional idea for her first jazz cd Anna created three free e-cards to send to friends and family. The links at the right will take you to them, or you can copy those links to send them to a friend. These e-cards helped her become one of CD Baby's top selling artists in 2003.
